Turkish
Fora Restaurant is one of the best Turkish restaurants in London. We are famous for lamb/chicken shish or mix grill kebabs accompanied by our delicious cold and hot mezes which are part of authentic Turkish cuisine.
The interior design is based on Ottoman Empire tradition that is sophisticated and luxurious. Therefore Fora is considered as a fine dining house offering all day eating experience.
However our accomplished guitarist Faruk Ceviz who plays regularly in Fora creates the right ambiance for diners. For a romantic dinner or party celebrations, Faruk will set the sonic mood accordingly. On Saturday evenings, we also host belly dancing show which is a favourite for many weekend customers.

Great for a fun, lively night out- not for a date (very noisy). Live singer and belly dancer (Saturday night). Food great, and plenty of it - you won’t leave hungry. Staff very attentive and friendly

Great restaurant with good food and service. It’s a place to go when you have time, not one for being in a rush.

All the food was tasty but we really enjoyed the chicken liver starter and the centik special.

Delicious! Had a great evening here with friends. Food is lovely, but as the only vegan at our table I was disappointed in the the falafel main as the dish was just falafel and hummus. Would of been nice to have more salad, or even some rice or chips to make it into a meal! Restaurant was empty when we went, we weren't in any rush but the service was particularly slow.

For whatever reason Opentable allowed us to make a reservation at this restaurant after it had closed. We walked into an almost empty restaurant and were told that the entire kitchen staff had already left for the night. Extremely disappointing after we made the trek out to Fora.

Always lovely food at Fora although the bread served with the starters is not as good as it used to be.

The staff and the food at Fora are always lovely and this visit was even better. We had the Christmas menu which had great choice and the mixed started was very good value for money and tasted amazing.

Adana kofte are my favourite.

Like other reviews mentioned the servers when you pay by credit card provide hand held cash machines asking you to pay a tip, after having already taken 12.5% service charge. The way it's done I'm sure more than a number of guests end up paying the the tip twice.

Efficient and accurate service even though there weren't many tables on a Wednesday evening. I had the lentil soup and the mixed grill. Soup was neither too creamy or too thin, just right for the lentil soup. Both lamb and chicken cubes were excellent. Adana was quite good and so was the lamb chop. Rice could have been better but I am not a big fan of white rice anyway.

Lovely restaurant but a horrible habit of adding the service to the bill and then offering the customer the card machine and asking for more service on top. Really puts me off.

The food and service were very good but atmosphere a little lacking as it was a Saturday lunch time and only two tables (including ours) were taken!

Food was not fresh! Tasteless, microwaved and from a tin is how I would describe the food here. Really poor service too, as after we complained there was no apology just 10% taken off the bill - staff lack customer service skills. This was probably the worst meal I have ever had. It was so bland and really did taste like the food was made days before and microwaved. The staff also forgot to bring our hot starters, there was a long wait for food.

I visited Fora with four colleagues for a business lunch. Service was excellent - efficient but friendly and not pushy. Food was absolutely delicious and well presented. Ambience was perfect - we arrived at 12:30 and only a few tables were occupied but by 1:30 every table was full and the noise level was low enough to easily hear ourselves but loud enough that there was an atmosphere. I was impressed by the value for money. I can’t wait to come back and bring friends!

From greeting to service of deliciously tasteful food, everything was simply excellent. Servers were attentive and polite. Along with your drink of wine or your choice, I would recommend starting off with meze platter for two, which includes variety of delicious appetizers. My main course was a pasta dish, which was perfectly blended with sauce and seasoning. Our party was there on a Monday evening, so it was pleasantly quiet for us, perfect for business meetings. I didn't pay the bill but prices on the menu looked reasonably budgeted.

Very good (and reasonably priced) menu, with good service. We had a vegan diet to accommodate in our booking, and there were lots of choices in this regard.
